I didn’t realize how much time my baby would spend in the stroller but also how much time I’d be pushing it! At first, I didn’t make too much research and it just gave me an insane headache when I had to figure out what was the lightest or what was compatible with a car seat and which adapters work with the model…anyway! let’s just say they definitely don’t make it easy for you!
shortcut advice: I got the nuna pipa car seat that is convertible with a lot of strollers and some travel strollers- it’s light, small and travels easy. Will be getting a Toddler car seat when needed. I found more complicated to find a car seat bigger that would last longer because it’s hard to take around and find convertible good strollers.
Within almost a year, I made a thorough research and finally picked a winner! what I also learned is that there’s a stroller for each different scenario! Here’s a few strollers that is worthy of your attention:
This is the one that we ended up getting after looking around and knowing what we needed and wanted. It rolls super easy, it folds really nicely. The basket is like everything for me, you can add groceries, your purse, toys, blankets….the list goes on. I realized how insane it gets with a baby as far as all the things that can come up with (picnic, walks, beach, groceries…) So super useful. You can also add a second baby when you’re ready and the basket doesn’t disappear. It comes with a bassinet, seat, rain cover and bugs cover! yyaaasss! only downside, you need two hands to fold it…I’ve found it a little challenging when I’m holding Oliver. But besides that, luv it!
They are so many Bugaboo made for your lifestyle! they are so pretty and definitely another great pick! a little pricier than most. They have strollers for twins, or just for the city, for long walks or even if you’re a runner! they fold really nicely and roll super nicely as well. Only downside is you have to buy each accessory on the side which can get pricey.
- THE JOOLZ
The Joolz is super pretty, you can design your own style and it’s for every occasion. Compatible with the nuna and other car seats makes it even more of a winner. it’s a popular one in NYC and getting more and more hip in LA. It folds really well, strolls so good too and you can add a baby, so it grows with you! Comes with a bassinet. Only downside is you lose the basket when adding a second baby and you have to purchase all accessory.
Nuna is one of my favorite brands! especially for the car seats. Their strollers are really convenient, well made and lightweight. The baskets are a good size plus it also have a zipper compartment. It’s easy to fold and rolls really well.
- OXO TOT CUBBY
This one is especially convenient if you’re traveling a lot or just want a good stroller that is easy to take around with you! Very nicely priced, good quality, lightweight, folds with one hand and compatible with some car seats!
While we’re on the subject of traveling, this stroller is A-mazing and the funny part is everyone used to call my mom Yo-yo! it folds small enough to take it as a carry-on! super light, with a decent basket and really cute too. It’s also compatible with the nuna pipa car seat which is my favorite of them all. it’s a great stroller for the city and traveling. Only downside, wouldn’t use it as a stroller for activities like hiking, running and some…
- GRACO & CHICO BRAVO TRAVEL SYSTEM
If you don’t want the headache to figure out what is compatible with what and you’re looking for a good stroller for a decent price that has a car seat that comes with, these are really good. I started out with the Graco and it’s a good stroller, fold really easy and rolls just fine. Only downside, the basket is small, it’s a little heavy after a while of pushing and you’d have to find universal accessories that fits as in rain cover etc…
